8 Photo And Video Sharing Tools For Twitter You May Not Have Seen

Since new Twitter tools are popping up what seems like every day, I figured I’d give a list of some of the latest ones I’ve seen people discussing. There are the standards that most people use, like TwitPic and TwitVid.io (which we covered before here) but here are some you may not have seen before.

Photo Sharing

  • Twitgoo is probably the most “Twitter-like” one of the bunch. You can tweet right from there (after logging in) and include an image right from the section where you post your Tweet.
  • Pikchur Use your computer, cell phone, or any other mobile device to post your pics, and Pikchur takes care of distributing them all over the social web for you! Offers a paid “PRO” package to track stats too, which is different.
  • yfrog 1. Upload an image or video from your desktop or from an URL 2. Enter your message 3. Enter your credentials to Twitter 4. Click post it. VERY simple interface. From the same people who created ImageShack.
  • TweetPhoto offers a lot of the advanced options you might enjoy for free: Stats, geo-tagging, favoriting/retweeting, etc.

Video Sharing

  • TwitLENS Simply login with your Twitter credentials and you are ready to start sharing media on Twitter. Uses OAuth.
  • 12seconds Create short video clips that you record with your webcam, mobile phone, or upload. Show people where you are and what’s going on. Uses OAuth.
  • Twiddeo Upload from the web, your cameraphone and record from your webcam.
  • TwitC Use Twitc to organize, search, view, comment, share, embed, batch download, collect, favorite, rate uploads, view timelines and profiles, post links to or embed files, and send updates to your profile on Twitter, MySpace, Facebook and 35 other sites.

Are there any others that I may have missed? Have you tried any of the above? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    I find Posterous the best way to share photos, videos, etc on Twitter. The main way to post is by email (which means you don’t need to have a full-on smartphone, just one with email) and it handles all sorts of photo, audio and video files from mobile phones.

    And Posterous makes it easy to share all over the web – you can set up autoposting to Flickr, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LiveJournal, blogging platforms and so on. I’m a big fan of it.

    I have only used twitpic but these others sound very good also.

    Try Mobypicture which does audio, video and photos as well as having all the usual features like geotagging. Much superior to things like Twitpic.

    I find Mobypicture the best one around, with it’s functions to share all your pictures (and video!) with other social networks.

    You missed out http://mobypicture.com – it integrates witg Gravity for the S60 and also publishes to Flickr from the tweet – it rocks!

  • July 21, 2009

    Another video one is http://www.tinycast.me – you can record video to twitter straight from your webcam.

    How can you forget Mobypicture.com, especially if you call yourself a PROblogger :D just kiddin’ but you should include it!

    [Note: Check the name up top, Bryan... Darren didn't write this! I sure don't call myself a PROblogger, I leave that up to Darren! :)

    That being said, I personally hadn't heard of MobyPicture until you guys mentioned it... like I said in the post, these were just ones I found that I hadn't heard of, and maybe you guys hadn't either. Clearly more of you knew of MP than I did! - Lara]

    Many websites are touting to be the best host for posting your videos to twitter.com including 12seconds.tv, twitcam.com and more. Making videos for people to watch with a twitter attention span is a challenging concept. Content that is personal or editorial can be crowded out at youtube.com by entertainment.

    What should happen is a site that connects to the most common video maker used by computers and that is your webcam. Just recently began to post my tokbox.com videos to twitter and the result is the best solution from a website so far. I alter the default text from tokbox to include a title and keyword and tag the content.

    #remix #dj #music #video #tokbox for example.

    The link takes you directly to an uncluttered webpage presenting the video from host tokbox without any demand to register as a user. The page has a link to the video maker’s tokbox profile, as well.


    Videos made on tokbox have a maximum running time of 10 minutes.

    Try this feature out and see what you think of tokbox.com hosting webcam chat on messenger and facebook accounts, too. Media sharing and video conferencing are simple too.

    hi! is there an application for twitter and for mobile phone that doesn’t require an internet connection all the time? just wondering…tnx!

  • December 25, 2009

    There are very few mobile applications that lets you share pictures, video, audio and other media from your mobile.
    One such tool that allows all multimedia experiences at one place is Tvider,that allows you to tweet out videos along with audio and images.
